in an extraordinary way. i conclude by simply saying that when we pay tribute to nelson mandela, as we rightly do, we should pay tribute to him for what he stood for and we should acknowledge what he achieved in south africa, but we should also recognise what he taught the world about the resolution of what seemed like intractable political problems through patience, personality, courage, and diplomacy. military solutions and armed struggle are sometimes unavoidable, but often they are avoidable and he demonstrated that better than anyone in our time. >> mr. peter hain. >> i thank the prime minister, the deputy prime minister and the leader of the opposition for their perhaps over-generous remarks about my role. let me simply underline that there were many tens of thousands of activists in the anti-apartheid movement who deserve to be acknowledged as well. thank you, mr. speaker, for your personal leadership in ensuring that this tribute debate is such a special event, as you said, for such a special person. i note that you are wearing the south african tie on this occasion. i specifically thank you
